Another Saturday, another Penny Black Challenge.  This weeks instructions was Christmas For The Guys, so make a card suitable for a male of the species!  Not always easy that!  I’m using Royal Mail again, primarily because I only have the two PB stamps at the minute and I used Snow Squad last week!!  Maybe Father Christmas will take pity on me and bring me some more!!

I love the way this card turned out in terms of the papers I used, but I’m not so keen on the image this time and the snowflake embellishments, I way over did the glitter!!  It’s a very tall card at 9 1/4″ by 3 3/4″, but I think that really helped the lovely paper to stand out.
